MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota Vikings say they are still working on a proposal for a new stadium in Arden Hills.

Vice president Lester Bagley says “a handful of issues” are still being discussed as they work to fine tune the proposal and get it ready for presentation to the Legislature.

The Vikings don’t expect that to happen until state leaders resolve the budget stalemate. Bagley says lawmakers “have other issues and priorities and we respect those.”

Bagley says the Vikings will be ready when called upon. He says they are still discussing the size and scope of the project, but did not want to get into specifics.

Options for reducing the $1 billion price tag include changing plans for a retractable roof to make it a fixed roof.
